I cant speak for other schools, but i can compare Ohio State to Duke athletics. 

This is just my observation and my experience; not "facts". 

I used to tutor(and TA for Bio 101, Chem 101 and Swahili) at osu and to be brutally honest, other than just being outright lazy some players(more than 5) had a hard time reading and pronouncing words at ohio state. 

While pursuing my MS at Duke, on the side for beer money i tutored (mostly athletes)and it was night and day vs Ohio State. Night and day. Most were pretty hard working and did what was asked of them. The mentality at Duke is very different even if you are not the brightest. You do your assignments or at least attempt to, and you dont have people from your staff following you to class to make sure you at attending them. 

I also know three guys who have gone to great schools on athletic scholarship with ok grades and test scores. Northwestern(football) 2.5 gpa, 1050 SATs, Cornell(crew) 1210 SATs 3.5gpa and Georgetown(crew) 1160 SATs and 3.4 gpa)

So, while I dont disagree with you, I do feel athletes at Duke were much much more hardworking than OSU. 

P.s: and you did not get the DV from me :)

Kinda surprised no one has mentioned this or I might have missed it, but Perry put a great interview. Is he a Comm major? Very confident, smooth, linguistically very sound. Really impressed.

Someone please call the Bama team a damn whambulence. 

What was their damn excuse for losing to Oklahoma?

Agreed. What was done to weber and his coach is wrong. No point crying over spilt milk on their end. 

It's simple. Urban needs to apologize and give him his release to do what he wants. The staff was clearly wrong in this, and holding on to weber will only make the situation even worse. 

So, let the go kid make up his own mind and apologize. Simple really. If anything, this is not a good impression for future recruits. 

Oh and I'd didn't dv you.

Let. Weber. Go.

if weber and his coach are going to have a hissy fit about this, let the kid go where he will be happy. Simple. 

This is turning into more drama than needed. 

What this team is about is a tight brotherhood and fellow teammates spoke out having webers back in wanting him part of the team and if weber still wants no part of this team...duces!

6:59 and looking for parking spaces?? man, things really have changed at OSU. Back in '10 if you got to lot B anything before 8am you could pretty much pick your spot. 

Have prices gone up? i paid $170 and i think C was a 100
